Police have cleared the area where a disabled vehicle had snarled traffic Friday morning on the southbound side of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

The problem reported around 8:15 a.m. prompted two lanes to be shut down, but the Mount Pleasant Police Department stated at 8:30 a.m. the car had been moved.

People traveling from Mount Pleasant to downtown Charleston can still expect delays as traffic gets back to normal.

Otherwise, traffic was moving slowly at spots on eastbound Interstate 26, but no wrecks were adding to the usual congestion there.

S.C. Department of Transportation cameras around 7:30 a.m. showed heavy traffic between the University Boulevard and Ashley Phosphate Road interchanges.

The S.C. Highway Patrol reported only that authorities were helping a motorist with a disabled vehicle around the West Montague Avenue interchange.

No major wrecks were apparent.
